As far as epic fantasy goes:

Really enjoyed Stormlight. Kingkiller chronicles are awesome so far, and I cannot wait for the third book to be released. I found the first couple books of the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan to be pretty good.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. Very light urban fantasy, and a lot of fun (excluding Ghost Story, which can literally just be skipped)

I read the first four books, plus a spin-off which acts as a somewhat sequel to the first trilogy.

The trilogy was pretty great, especially the second book. The spin-off was decent. The fourth book was... alright, but didn't do enough to keep me hooked.

Lord of the Rings
The Shannara books Terry Brooks
The Midkemia books Raymond E Feist

These are unquestionably the bestest. :)

The Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski is pretty good, I definitely recommend The Last Wish
